Cycling Blinking Attention, Ready, and Go Lights – HP Printer Warning Lights on HP LaserJet 1320 Printers

This happens as a result of different conditions. Therefore, we will discuss the various reasons for this warning light pattern and also provide solutions to each reason.

1. The Printer is Initializing or Starting Up

This happens during the printer’s initialization/startup. When this happens, you don’t have to do anything; wait for the initialization/startup to be completed. Pressing the printer’s buttons won’t have any effect.

2. Special Initialization Sequence was Requested

This situation also happens when a special initialization sequence during the startup was requested. An example of such a sequence is Cold Reset. In the same way, as in the above case, you have to wait for the initialization sequence to be completed before you proceed.

3. The Print Job was Canceled

This can happen when you just canceled a print job. Therefore, pressing any button including the “Go” button on your printer will not have any effect. Once the job has been canceled, your printer will return to its ready state.

4. The Printer is Performing a Cleaning Process

With the aid of the HP Toolbox, you can carry out a cleaning feature on your HP printer. When this mode and process is initiated, you need to wait for the printer to complete the cleaning and print out a cleaning page. Therefore, pressing any button on the printer will not have any effect. Once the cleaning is complete, your printer will return to a ready state.

You can also choose to print out a demo page by pressing and then releasing the printer’s “Go” button. You can also send a print job to your printer.

Also, when the ready light is on and the wireless light is off, it shows that the wireless function is not active. You don’t have to do anything unless you are actively trying to connect your printer to a wireless network. If you are trying to connect your printer to a wireless network, you can follow the instructions in your printer’s user manual to guide you on how to connect your printer to a wireless network.
